Monkey Head Monster

One of my guilty pleasures is the "Your True Tales" set of posts to near the beginning of each month.  For the most part, I'd say that these are neither true nor tales -- they're the first real attempt at fiction by a teenager (typically) who has read a few dozen of these stories and thought to himself or herself, "I can write a story as good as that."  Sadly, they are correct.

I have to make an exception for the story "Monkey Head Monster" (preserved here) from April 2007, though. That story is a work of art, almost of poetry: a truly beautiful satire of a genre that screams out for satire.
